[edit]

Dr. Who's biggest threat doesn't come from the Daleks or the Androids.

It comes from TV licence evaders.

Without their licence fees, the BBC simply can't afford to keep all its series alive.

Already this year; there have been casualties in the way of cuts.

As costs rise, there will be more.

And though the axe isn't quite poised over Dr. Who, it's certainly being sharpened.

YOU NEED A, LICENCE, BY LAW

Every programme on BBC TV and radio is equally vulnerable. Because each depends solely on licence fees.

Understandably, the BBC requests every viewer to get a licence.

More to the point, the law demands you get one.

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE.

If you're viewing TV without a licence, it's just a matter of time before you're found out

(Bylaw, retailers have to register the name and address of anyone who rents or buys a TV)

Either computer records will give the game away.

Or TV detector vans will pick up a signal from your unlicensed licensed set.

If you do get caught, you're in trouble. You'll get a summons and a fine of up to £200.

SAVING FOR A LICENCE.

At £34, a colour licence works out a good deal cheaper than a fine.

And the easiest way to get one is to buy 50p TV licence savings stamps at your post office.

This way you help both yourself and the Beeb.

Save for your licence and you'll save the characters you love.

Along with. all those monsters you love to hate. DON'T OVERLOOK YOUR TV LICENCE.
